FTW Events is a federal 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that hosts charity tabletop gaming events in the Seattle area. Founded originally as Dawgsled Events in 2013 by Matt Winberry, we were later reborn as FTW Events and newly incorporated as a non-profit in 2016.
FTW Events’ mission is to channel a love of gaming into ways to make a difference and doing so in a way that celebrates diversity in the gaming community. We have hosted a number of events that have raised thousands for charities such as Meow Cat Rescue (as Dawgsled Events), the Imagine Guild, and Seattle Children’s Hospital. Today, the organization is comprised of a group of friends volunteering their time who all believe in gaming for good. Thank you for supporting us.
We mentioned that our values include a commitment to promoting diversity in the gaming community. It is our strong belief at FTW Events that games facilitate interaction between people regardless of their differences, including but not limited to age, disability, gender identity, sexual preference, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds, religion, and political affiliation. We bring this mindset to every event we put on and in all our actions. FTW Events is committed to providing safe, fun and unique fundraising events. Our doors are open to all, and we look forward to being your gracious host.
Say "Hi" to Rex

Rex, our beloved mascot, has the important job of telling you all about our latest events. Rex is the embodiment of our belief that tabletop gaming can be enjoyed by anyone and be used to bring people together.
